about several disease due to lack of knowledge and awareness.
He said that the treatment for piles would be more effective if the patients seek medical advice at
the earliest. Though there had been a revolution in the method of treatment, piles patients have a
tendency to approach doctors belatedly. “Patients need not feel ashamed or shy of piles. It is an
ordinary disease. But, patients should shed inhibition and approach doctors without any
hesitation,” he said.
He said that piles is found more predominantly during pregnancy, after child birth, employed
women, IT employees and drivers. The doctor said that people who have to sit for long hours
while at work, should make it a practice to walk at regular intervals. “They should also take up
physical exercises and consume food with more fibre content. Lack of physical exercise,
unhealthy food habits and stress are some of the reasons for piles. But, it can be effectively
controlled with healthy diet and yoga,” he said.

has been consuming unhealthy food. Dependence on fast food is ruing health.

patients screened at the Sunday’s camp. Experts from several hospitals in the city will be present
